Good morning, everyone! Today is February 1st and, as promised, I am here to report on my January goals. How appropriate that this check-in should fall on Confessional Wednesdays. Because, though I tried to limit myself to three goals in an effort to achieve them all, I achieved 0 out of 3. So let’s run through each of them and figure out why it happened and how I can work harder in February.
Progress on January Goals:
By 1/31/16, I will read two books.
I read 1.5. I gotta be honest. I had more than enough time to read two books. But, I spent the last two weeks glued to news reports and NPR. When I made these goals at the beginning of January, I didn’t realize our crazy-ass President was going to turn the world upside down in less than a week.
By 1/31/16, I will lose 5 pounds.
Um, would you believe me if I said I gained 2 pounds instead of losing five? (If you follow me on Snapchat and saw me snap those pictures of potato chip nachos yesterday, you’re probably rolling your eyes at me and saying, “Duh”). But, I realized toward the end of January that I just can’t do it with the Weight Watchers e-tools alone. I need someone to weigh me in once a week. I need to know that somebody is going to be looking at my weight. So I signed up to attend the meetings again.
By 1/31/16, I will complete a blogging course.
I finished more than half of it. The thing is that once I learn something new through a video or a session, I’ll want to immediately go play around with my blog and my Dashboard. But, that’s part of the learning process, right? I won’t actually learn it if I don’t attempt to fiddle with it myself.
I’ll be back on Friday with some new monthly goals after I spend some more time thinking about actionable items I want to focus on.
Have a good one! <3
